NAMM 2016: Shure Introduce the KSM8 Dualdyne - The First Ever Dual Diaphragm Dynamic Microphone

Shure KSM8
Shure KSM8
The Shure KSM8 will revolutionize dynamic microphones in the live sound industry by providing sound engineers with a dynamic microphone that has virtually no proximity effect, a mastery of off-axis rejection and an output accuracy that requires none of the presence peaks or roll-offs that are typical of other dynamic microphones.

"It's a hit!" stated Chris Pollard, FOH Mumford & Sons. "Marcus really enjoyed the KSM8 on his first gig with it last night at Rock in Roma. As did I. Really clean, flat response, smooth HF and the reduction in spill is quite amazing! He'd like to change the mic out mid tour, Marcus also commented on how good the mic looked, and wanted to use it immediately...."

The ability to virtually eliminate proximity effect and master off-axis rejection is powered by the patented Dualdyne cartridge of the KSM8. The cartridge features two ultra-thin diaphragms-one active and one passive-and a groundbreaking inverted airflow system.

The black-finished KSM8 is also available as handheld transmitter option for use with Axient, UHF-R, ULX-D, and QLX-D wireless systems.
